Government Affairs Committee

KRA recognizes the importance of being involved, as issues affecting our members are being debated and decided. Therefore, your association maintains an active presence in Frankfort. Our legislative team works closely with state lawmakers on legislation being considered by the General Assembly. KRA has initiated several bills to benefit our members but has been equally active in opposing those measures that would cause harm. The association also represents the industry in the regulatory arena. We monitor proposed regulatory changes and intervene with state agency officials on those issues directly affecting the foodservice industry.

Since its establishment, KRA has made government affairs activity a priority for the association. Legislators and executive branch officials recognize us as the voice of the restaurant community in Kentucky. Through our presence in Frankfort, KRA has been able to help shape public policy that affects our members. Below is a list of annual summaries of some of the association’s accomplishments on key issues over the past decade.
